BIO - MYRIAM BLEAU & LATURBO AVEDON
Myriam Bleau is a composer, digital artist and performer based in Montreal. She creates audiovisual systems that go beyond the screen, such as sound installations and performance-specific musical interfaces. Her hybrid electronic practice investigates music performance as a codified cultural manifestation and recontextualizes pop culture elements and music history tropes. Her work has been recognized and presented internationally : Prix Ars Electronica (AT), Sónar (ES) and Sónar Hong Kong, Sonic Arts Award (IT), Elektra (CA), Mutek (MX), ISEA (CA), Transmediale (DE), ACT (KR), Laboral + Lev (ES), Scopitone (FR) and Cafe Oto (UK), to name a few.
LaTurbo Avedon is an avatar and artist originating in virtual space. Their work emphasizes the practice of nonphysical identity and authorship. Many of the works can be described as research into dimensions, deconstructions exploring topics of virtual authorship and the physicality of the Internet. They curate and design Panther Modern, a a file-based exhibition space that encourages artists to create site-specific installations for the internet.
LaTurbo’s process of character creation continues through gaming, performance and installations. Their work has appeared internationally, including TRANSFER Gallery (New York), Transmediale (Berlin), Haus der elektronischen Künste (Basel), The Whitney Museum (New York), HMVK (Dortmund), Barbican Center (London), and Galeries Lafayette (Paris).
ETERNITY BE KIND
LaTurbo Avedon performs Myriam Bleau’s music in a multiplatform audiovisual performance.
Eternity Be Kind exposes the codified spaces of performance and hints at a different future for personal and musical representation.
Navigating between hyper pop, mythical symbolism and baroque hints, the artists propose a multilayered experience of collective mise en abyme.
